St. Martin Car Rentals

Car rentals are a good option for touring both nations while visiting the island

 

It seems like second nature for most travelers these days: when you book your flight and hotel, you book a rental car as well. While this is not always necessary, those visiting St. Martin may find merit in having the ability to drive back and forth between the French and Dutch sides of the island with ease.

Renting a Car

Maps

Rental agencies will usually deliver cars directly to your hotel, so you may need to take a taxi from the airport. There are many agencies at your disposal, however, and you can find rental car stations near the airport.

Requirements and restrictions can vary. St. Martin does honor international driver's licenses for those who wish to rent cars, but if you are concerned about minimum and maximum age restrictions, insurance requirements and the like, consider contacting each firm directly, before making a final decision.

Check the following table for many of the rental centers serving St. Martin.

The Cost of Renting a Car

Rental rates are affordable, with prices ranging from $30 to $50(USD) a day with unlimited mileage and free drop-off service. Renters will incur extra fees with the price of gasoline, child seats, extra driver permits, and the highly recommended collision damage insurance, which will generally run from $9 to $14(USD) a day. Credit card holders should also learn about rental vehicle insurance that may be held on their cards.

Driving Around Saint Martin

Driving is done on the right hand side of the road in St. Martin. Roads are well maintained and in good condition for the Caribbean, but drivers should beware of poorly lit streets, herds of animals, and concealed or missing street signs. Drivers should always drive defensively while in another country.

Seat belts are required to be worn by all ages and at all times. Children under 12 must ride in the back seat, and children under 4 should be in a car seat or booster. Some rental car agencies even offer safety seats for rent.

Gasoline stations in the area are relatively abundant. Check the listing below for locations. the table

There are plenty of options for renting a car in St. Martin, and the absence of a custom or border patrol station means that a short drive is the only thing that separates the French and the Dutch sides of the island.
